Looking to extend capability of line of business application for industrial user environment by adding a friendly, touch-capable, attractive 3d environment where users will interact with each other and a "helper" (simple AI) to accomplish complex tasks in a fast-paced, demanding work environment. The application's aim is to make the work easier by helping the people see the most important things to be done in a visual way, and to see where their team mates are working and might need help.
We are very new to the graphics world, but thinking this would be a 3d MMORG that renders an animated environment, keeps track of all the players' movements and activities, and provides location specific information and inter-player communication. We envision an 3d image of the workplace, and grid-based overlays dynamically appearing based on context and user actions.
This is a line of business application, 10,000 users - the majority are female, professional, PC literate, but not gamers or technicians.
Using Visual Studio 2010 or higher, make a Windows 8 C# / Unity (or other 3D engine) (can also be VB.NET) project.
The project is highly dependent on working with large datasets in SQL Server 2008 or higher (using .NET SQL Client) -
For starters we will provide a set of tables and populate them in a SQL DB.
Sites - showing the basic 3d footprint of a space (buildings and grounds)
Resources - smaller 3d objects to represent Machines, small Offices, vehicles.
Users - people, who are associated to resources.
a) Client navigates a simple, friendly, attractive, 3d environment -
- quickly get to any resource or user, and see data from the sql table that describes the user / resource (in grid form)
b) zoom in/out, rotate, multi-select, engage users / resources - like a simple 3d fps but not an fps. Do not need latest generation graphics quality. The environment is fairly simple - there will most likely be a lot more data (in grid form) on the screen at any given time than "environment".
c) Backend application runs the sql queries with the full SQL Client capability in .NET. Client sends request to the db server, and the server authenticates and returns the data to the client. this is why I need the program to be in a .NET project (vb or c#).
We are currently running in VB.NET / SQL Server, Winforms. We need your help to jumpstart our capabilities to the Windows 8 world using 3D / touch. To build the 1.0 environment - get us started by sharing the source code you write for us, and explaining how it works. We will take care of all the business logic. An NDA / IP agreement is required.
Timeframe is starting asap, but can wait up to 6 weeks for the right talent.
